I'm worried about the length, I have room for an oval but 20" is to much.
what else is out there?

The above are 13.5" tip to tip, fear is that we get into the axle area?

What about making our own?

Run two sets of 3" stainless pipes (one for the turbo downpipe, one for the wastegate). Stack them on top of each other sorta like the idea Ryan had, with both pipes on the passenger side. Just transition the wastegate pipe to a 3" so both are the same size.

Have the pipes run to a point where they will clear everything (if possible) and then have them sweep upwards like a sport bike exhaust for the portion that will hold the inserts. Cap off the inserts with these 360 degree adjustable turndowns.

Inserts are made for 3" pipes and are 7" long

I can do that on the drivers side by dropping under the trans (tons of room) cross under then up and out?

I'm a bit nervous about the same issue (running out of room &/or running into the axle) when we go to do the V-8 exhaust on the TR-82 (Chassis #5). It looks like you folks, however, have the matter well in hand on this build. It certainly will be unique.

There's room its more about the aesthetics at this point, It'll actually work a number of ways we just have to pick one and run with it.

I found a company that offers you-weld-it custom muffler kits in stainless.

We went with the same powder as the engine parts were done in, Cant scratch it unless you try and even that would be hard to do.

Default Body paint color

It's official - the hood, side pods and intercooler scoop will be painted Synergy Green from the new Camaro. I have loved this paint since I first saw it in person, which pictures cannot do justice.

The center inset section of the hood and side pods will be wrapped in a 3M carbon fiber as well as the center dash, center console, seat backs and about anything else that comes to mind.

I'd say run a large chambered exhaust, dual exit.




Something like that. You could also position it to help 'hide' the trans that's poking out.

I'm planning to run a similar style exhaust on mine. I also don't think they sound to bad on a Subie with equal length.

I see where your headed. I was thinking more like this, making a mount that comes off the sides of the trans and straps the mufflers to the engine/trans so that it can rock (rubber engine mounts) with the motor instead of flex pipe.
911's use the same style.
Bad drawing but it shows my idea.
The trans tail shaft wont be there and the block off plate will be inside the lower chassis tube.

Exactly! Has to be Black to go with Marty's scheme is why we are looking at the various flat black ovals for the right size....we'll find it!
Wonder if Powder coat can take muffler temps? I know the pipes are much hotter than the final mufflers....?

You know, I love the Atom! (its my inspiration) but doesnt it seem they went to great lenghts to mount everthing that weighs anything as high in the chassis as they could? I wonder why?

^^^I had thought the same thing. However chamber mufflers are usually rather light as they are normally pretty dran empty.

I have the dimensions from the Megan one, that someone took for me. I say just make it.

It's simple to do. We use to make our own for FSAE.
